. this is the new republican plan to go after budgets in america. this is exactly what republican governors like walker have always dreamed of. they've been on a mission to privatize public education for years so they can make money. republicans can't stand the fact that public education isn't about the almighty dollar. the demonization of public education in america, can we come it a conclusion tonight that this really has to stop? because we have to take a closer look at what we're doing to the future of our country? and it's all starting with the work force, isn't it? the teachers. got to go after them. let me remind americans tonight that nobody goes into teaching to get rich. they do it because they love helping people. they love the reward of seeing kids reach their potential. it takes a special person to be a teacher. but governors like walker want teachers to bear the burden of shared sacrifice. walker refused. he refused to raise taxes on the rich. but he wants to stick it to the teachers who average, don't let me knock you off the couch tonight, folks, a whopping $51,000 a year. it's n

there are two different political parties in the united states of america. the chamber of commerce spent more money in last year's election than any other outside spending group. they put 93% of their chamber of commerce donations towards republican candidates. there are two sides. and because the democratic side is inherently the one with more people continue, and this is a democracy, and it is one person, one vote, the republican side in order to compete with that have to use money to leverage as many votes as they can. their side represents the interest of fewer people. that's where they found social issues and abortion and gay rights and religion and all of these other things to come in handy. there's an economic split between the two parties, between democrats and republicans, but more people are on the democratic side of that economic split, almost by definition. so republicans have had to use noneconomic conditions to get people to vote with the economic elite and against their own economic interest. the other way this works is this. to the extent that democrats embrace their role as s

connell-inhofe amendment. america america my -- mr. merkley: my colleague from texas was addressing this amendment and noting her support for it. i would like to address several reasons that y this amendment is bad policy for america. first and foremost, this amendment increases our addiction to foreign oil. it increases oil consumption by 455 million barrels. right now we import about 9.7 million barrels of oil per day. so this amendment is equivalent to six weeks' worth of oil imports. recognize that gas prices are about $3.50 a gallon. the mcconnell-inhofe amendment amounts to a $68 billion price tag for working families to buy gas, to buy gas from oil imported from overseas. and this isn't a tax that in any way supports our economy. in fact, this is a tax that goes out of our economy to purchase energy from overseas. so, from the middle east, from nigeria, from venezuala. that is very profitable to the companies that supply that oil. it's very profitable to the governments far outside of the united states of america. but it certainly hurts the citizens of our nation. it takes our energy dollar

after bank of america because apparently they have a huge amount of profits and they didn't pay any taxes in 2009. we're going to talk about that in a second. 100-some-odd protesters. it's not london, but they're getting there. we had huge protests in wisconsin as well for many weeks on end. and they had, you know, some success in galvanizing people. and as you're about to see, they also cost the republicans some serious poll numbers. and that has an affect as well. but one thing it didn't have an affect with is governor walker. today in defiance of a court order, he came out and said i'm going to public my law taking away union rights. he says you can't pub lush it. it has to be done by the secretary of state. he said i don't give a damn. he had it published on the website of the legislature and skipping the law, skipping the courts. courts, what are they for? he thinks he's a tough guy and i guess he in hsmoli hielunr,ouno over ronald reagan, which doesn't make any sense. but he's ignored all the public opinion and guess what it's done to him? it's cost him a lot of popularity. wa

at the last minute by bank of america. insurance giant aig continued is teeter on the brink of bankruptcy. the stock market took a nose dive. plummeting like a rock falling through water, at one point losing 777 points in one day, biggest points loss ever. wall street melted down because a relatively small number of people who controlled a great deal of money did very irresponsible things with that money, irresponsible things they were allowed to get away with because so many of the rules had been taken away, rules that were originally put in place to prevent wall street from creating a massive public risk in order to chase private gain. those rules were taken away. lehman brothers disappeared, bear stearns disappeared, merrill lynch disappeared, investment banking virtually disappeared. president bush stepped in to take dramatic action to save the economy. this is not a partisan thing, it was done under george w. bush, but john mccain and barack obama both supported it. sarah palin even supported it. john boehner not only supported it, he cried on the floor of the house of representative
